Physios start new joint
COTTESLOE physiotherapists Greg Diamond and Anthony McEvoy used to run practices on the same street.
Now they share consulting rooms after merging their businesses – Cottesloe Physiotherapy and LifeCare Cottesloe – and moving to Cottesloe Central to become LifeCare Cottesloe Physiotherapy.
Mr Diamond closed the doors of Cottesloe Physiotherapy, which his father Peter Diamond started in 1962, after 26 years in the business.
“It gives me freedom from the day-to-day running of the practice so I can have more of a clinical focus, particularly using the Ridgeway Method, which is quite unique,” he said.
“You get to a stage when to have the dynamism you need to invite new and younger physios in and learn from them and contribute to them.”
Mr McEvoy started with LifeCare Wembley in 2004 and moved with the business to Cottesloe in 2007 where he became practice manager.
The Nedlands resident said the combination of experience and knowledge in physiotherapy and practice management between the two of them would ensure they could offer a broad range of services. The new practice has nine physiotherapists.
